麦卡锡在马拉松演讲中推迟对拜登的“重建更好法案”投票
代表. 凯文·麦卡锡, R-加利福尼亚, has commandeered the House floor for more than five hours – well into Friday morning – prompting Democrats to postpone the vote on President Biden’s spending bill until at least later Friday morning.

作为 4 上午, McCarthy seemed no worse for the wear and continued to rattle off stories about the time he won $ 5,000 in lotto as a younger man and the problems that the country faces, 包括通货膨胀, migration at the southern border, and the lack of bipartisanship at the Capitol.

At one point the minority leader asked how President Biden can be trusted with $ 5 trillion after the debacle in Afghanistan.

代表. Steny Hoyer, the Democrat majority leader, issued a statement early Friday that said members wereadvised that there are no further votes in the House tonight.The House will reconvene at 8 上午. ET and will likely vote on the bill.

Most Democrats abandoned the chamber after midnight with McCarthy still talking, 美联社报道.

House approval was still expected on a near party-line vote. That would send the measure to a Senate where cost-cutting demands by moderate Sen. 乔·曼钦, 德瓦, and that chamber’s strict rules seemed certain to force significant changes. That will prompt fresh disputes between party centrists and moderates that will likely take weeks to resolve. 单击此处了解我们的更多故事.
